ESL english C1: Lyrics Hezier - Take Me to Church

Hezier - Take Me to Church My lover's got humour She's the giggle at a funeral Knows everybody's disapproval I should've worshipped her sooner If the heavens ever did speak She's the last true mouth-piece Every Sunday's getting more bleak A fresh poison each week We were born sick You heard them say it My Church offers no absolutes She tells me, "Worship in the bedroom." The only heaven I'll be sent to Is when I'm alone with you— I was born sick, but I love it Command me to be well Aaay Amen. Amen. Amen. Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife Offer me that deathless death Good God, let me give you my life Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife Offer me my deathless death Good God, let me give you my life If I'm a pagan of the good times My lover's the sunlight To keep the Goddess on my side She demands a sacrifice Drain the whole sea Get something shiny Something meaty for the main course That's a fine looking high horse What you got in the stable? We've a lot of starving faithful That looks tasty That looks plenty This is hungry work Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife Offer me my deathless death Good God, let me give you my life Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife Offer me my deathless death Good God, let me give you my life No Masters or Kings when the Ritual begins There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene Only then I am Human Only then I am Clean Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife Offer me that deathless death Good God, let me give you my life Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife Offer me my deathless death Good God, let me give you my life

ESL english: Lyrics VAYA CON DIOS - For You

VAYA CON DIOS


For You Lyrics
Angel, for you
There's nothing she wouldn't do
She'd give you the moon
Wrapped in the morning drew
Her love is so strong
You could never do no wrong
When the damage is done
You know she'll excuse you
Afraid to lose you
Chorus
You've always been her little boy
Her joy and her pride
She watched you smashing up for your toys
Now you smash up your life
But rememer, baby
It was all for you, baby
Baby, for you
There's nothing she wouldn't do
She'd give you the moon
When you don't want her to
Chorus
Only for you
